- Saka was born in the jarldom of the meeting lands, as a very whiney, and loud child. Things were always boring in this ruin of a city. He was always too quick to act and never thought about his actions. Matter a fact, when he was just 4 years old he got into a fight with a 10-year-old and now has a scar on his back from falling into a bush. Yet, some did admire his determination. And some made fun of him for his stupidity. His parents were very kind and were able to supply food for him. His life looked great until he hit the age of 12, this is when his mother got sick. His mother came down with the flue. Since there the town was small, his dad had to leave with his mother to go to a larger city with better doctors. He had to stay home since the ice-cold tundras were too harsh for a small boy to travel. He never saw them since. So, ever since that day he was raised by the rest of his town. The citizens gave Saka a wolf, the wolf being the most common pet in the northern area. But he never lost hope, he still believed his parents were out there. So, for the next 6 years of his life he practiced swordplay and survival skills to train up until he was a full-grown man, and able to leave his town to find his mom and dad. Now, the anxious boy has become an anxious man. Getting ready to begin his journey to find his parents.

Section 4/4 - Open-ended questions
Please answer at least three of the questions to show how your character would interact with the world. Delete the spares (if applicable). Please include at least one paragraph for each question you answer.

Question 1

You stumble outside into the open air after some heavy drinking in an Oserian tavern. Just before you're about to pass an alleyway, a hooded man rushes out of it and runs for it - seemingly, he has both a blade and some jewelry on him. You take a quick peek in the alleyway to see a feminine figure collapsed on the ground, holding her hands over a bleeding wound in her torso. The thief is about to escape and the woman seems in critical condition. You...

- Without thinking, Saka runs to get the man running away. Once catching up to him, he holds a knife to his neck and asks what did he do to that, you woman. The man chuckles and says "hehe... While you getting on me, that woman is dying. All you wanna be saviors are the same." Saka looks back at the woman and realizes what he has done. He tries to get back to her to help but realizes he was too late. Perhaps if he just thought things through, that lady would still be alive.

Question 2

You are on your way to the Korean city of Teeth to sell some wares. Upon reaching the front gates you are stopped by the guard. They deny you entry for the time being as the traffic into the city is too high. You are effectively forced to wait in the refugee camp located between the two gates for the time being. The camp is
filled with shopping stalls and refugees sleeping on the floor. How do you spend your time in the camp?

-Saka spends his time anxious, not wanting to stay in the camp. The shopping stalls bore him and he simply wants to start some action. So he finds a nearby tree and begins practicing his sword on it. Swinging it back and forth, with each swing comes a new thought. He would do this every day, all day until he was let in.

Question 3

You've gotten lost and wandered awhile into Dahl lands, eventually finding yourself in Crookmire Swamp, where you decide to settle for the night. Finding a meal to buy for the evening takes some effort, but you do come across an old crone in ragged clothing, who offers to sell you some sea-looking food. She doesn't ask much but warns you that eating it is 'unpleasant' to outsiders. You...

-Saka decided to eat it. Although the food was UNBEARABLE he put on a smile to act as if he enjoyed it. "Y-yummy!". He said in an awkward voice. He would then wait until the person left to throw up all over the floor. Leaving him even more hungry than before.

Question 4

In the midst of battle, you find yourself approaching a wounded enemy soldier. The soldier is on the floor, clearly in terror as they cradle one of the dead. Enemy forces begin to advance in the distance and you know you have to act fast. The soldier then grasps at a cloth and removes it from the dead soldier's pocket. They continue to cry, and start calling the dead soldier's name in despair. Then the soldier glances up to see you - with your weapon up - but does not care about your approach, continuing to cradle the dead soldier. You…

- Although Saka is stupid, he is not heartless. He does whatever HE believes is right and would never allow someone else to dictate what his beliefs are. He went up to the fallen soldier and ripped off a piece of his clothing to patch up the wound. He would force the man to leave his friend, although the man was stubborn and wanted to stay by his friend. Saka then moved him to a nearby cave to get shelter from the military.

Question 5

You have wandered across a seemingly endless tundra for what has felt like days. A raging snowstorm makes you unable to see more than a few meters ahead. Being almost out of resources, you are delighted to find out that you have stumbled your way to a village. Upon closer inspection, you find out it's a Northern village, and the residents are not very friendly towards strangers. What do you do in this dire situation?

Saka would wait until the night to sneak to where the resources are. Not being too greedy, just taking what is needed. Such as food, wood, wool, etc. Saka would then attempt to leave the resource house but then, a guard stops him and asks in an aggravated,
"What are you doing?"
Saka froze in the moment.
"uhhh"
Saka said, all right before he would begin to run away from the guard. Eventually, Saka got away. But he lost some materials on the way.

You’re almost there! Your application is pending.

There are only a few things to change for a final decision.

Make the following edits to your application:

1.Your biography does not use server lore. You will need two lore items, one which must not be a location. You can use things such as religion, flora, and fauna. You also need to work on the capitalization of letters for your Biography.

2.Your short questions lack length and interaction with the npc's that were present. I would suggest writing up a conversation with the people that are in the question in between your character and them. Try and remember, not everything goes your way in life, feel free to put some conflict in there.

Once that is done, make a comment affirming you have made these changes and your application will be reviewed again as soon as possible.

Good luck!
